Charles II was the last Haspburg king of Spain.
 
For those of you who dont know what adjustment marks were at this period. When a flan was overweight the excess was filed away; this gives the appearance that the coin is scratched when in fact it is not. The flan was not smoothed so when it was subsequently struck the marks left by filing are visable.
